The history of our relationship with illnesses has shaped the world we know today.

Whether in pushing for scientific progress, or evolving society’s approach to care, healthcare and self care, we can clearly see today that this pandemic is a turning point in many ways.

History gives us the chance to put the situation into perspective. The Guardian published this very interesting VISUAL GUIDE about the responses to past pandemics, and the New York Times researched about HOW PANDEMICS SHAPED OUR WORLD. What can we learn from the past?

Germany has responded better than other countries to the Covid crisis. Its decentralised Healthcare System is by its structure more rapid and flexible to react to these situations. The DISTRIBUTED POWER proved to be an advantage to tackle efficiently the contagion, and a model for future developments.

With the possibilities of various waves of contagion, and to address the diversity of patients’ situations, doctors are getting ready to diversify treatment including SUPPLYING TREATMENT AT HOME. This option is particularly important with patients who don’t live close to big cities and hospitals, as this ITALIAN DOCTOR PROVED TO BE POSSIBLE.

The stress caused by a pandemic is of a specific kind, a PSYCHOLOGICAL MARATHON more than a sudden shock. A wide research highlighted the steep rise in treatments for mental health disorders, but hasn’t yet registered possible lasting effects. The one conclusion at this time is that we need to take care of ourselves.

How do we take care of ourselves in this unknown situation? By thinking positively, being kind with ourselves and the people around us, surrounding us with optimism. Here’s 5 ANTIDOTES FOR NEGATIVITY to lead at our best.

The Late Registration Period is ongoing until August the 16th for our competitions: HEALING – ALTERNATIVE DESIGNS FOR QUARANTINE CITIES and SOCIAL DISTANCING HOUSING BLOCKPlease have a look at the updated briefs with some extra instructions about the submission formatting and delivery.

And, drums rolling! A brand new Non Competition is opening next Sunday August the 2nd, the COUNTDOWN IS ON!
